Dragon Ball Z is a staggeringly successful manga/anime franchise written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama during the 80's and 90's. It follows the adventures of an over-muscled man-child named 'Son Goku' who fights other over-muscled men while making sure the legendary 'Dragon Balls' stay out of evil hands.

A childhood favourite of Podtoid host Jim Sterling, it gained immense popularity in the west after being broadcast on Cartoon Network in the early 90's where it's flashy fights and characters who possessed ambiguous sexual orientations helped craft the lovely, bespectacled englishman into what he is today. The series has spawned animated feature films, a really shitty live action movie, countless videogames, several follow up series including 'Dragonball GT' and other assorted merchandise
